Stitch up a feeling with Sublime Stitching Stationary
Did I mention that I love Sublime Stitching and Jenny Hart? She is the one of the main reasons that I got into embroidery. I love her patterns and kits. I most recently got the Sublime Stitching Stationary set. First off, the packaging is SO cute! The top and bottom of the kit is stitched. The inside is a little folder with 4 skeins of floss, 2 needles and 5 cards with envelopes.
The plus,the cards are preprinted and you punch the little dots and start stitching. Also, you pretty much get everything you need to make the cards. The patterns are very cute and there are a few familiar faces in the mix. If you want to cover up your stitching, the kit suggest to cover it up with a piece of pretty paper.
The only downside about the stationary is that I think some of of the lines/dots could be closer together on the curves, cause they are a little hard to do.
I think that you should use 5 or 6 stands of floss instead of the 4 I used and this would help cover the preprinted lines completely. The cards did bend a bit when I stitched them but once I was done, I put a book on top of them to flatten out.
In my opinion the stationary kit is well worth the money, in the US it's only $14.95. You really get a lot of bang for your buck. It's a project that anyone at any level can do. What better way to say I love you than to give your sweetie a handstitched card with your sugary sweet confessions on the inside. It's like candy for embroiderista.
